Review: I love the DXL as a great beat in turnover disc that won't come back much, also a great pick for begginners not too under or over stable, a disc to try for all abilities.

Review: I've had decent success with a 174 gram XL but it had a tendency to fade a bit no matter how I threw it. I tried the 150 class XL and it is an insane straight flyer going with the wind and has a very predictable, long anhyzer when thrown into the wind. If thrown hard enough, it will not come back one bit.

All in all, I'm impressed with the 150 class XL. It's not for people with really big arms and it's tough to get any kind of hyzer out of it...but it definately has it's uses. Generally used for straight shots or anhyzers with the wind to your back. Not a bad disc for a really good price.

Review: I find the Pro D XL to be the straightest disc in my bag. I use it mostly for long aproach shots, or as a fairway driver. When thrown low and hard it has very little fade and when its beat in a bit makes for very nice long hyzer flip shots.

Review: The XL in pro D plastic is a great driver. It is very similar in flight charateristics to a Millennium Orion but the XL has a bit more fade. It has more distance than a TeeBird L or a Cyclone and for me it flies straighter, more predictably, and about the same distance as a valkyrie. If you throw it anhyzer it will usually not come back. The elite X version of this disc is too overstable for me to throw max distance but the pro-D plastic throws quite neutral.
